New White Paper Provides Important Overview of SAFe® 4.5
We are pleased to announce the release of the ‘SAFe 4.5 Introduction’ white paper. It can be downloaded here.
The white paper provides a high-level overview of the Scaled Agile Framework® and describes its core values, principles, practices, and strategy for implementation.
The white paper also introduces the four new configurations of SAFe: Full SAFe, Large Solution SAFe, Portfolio SAFe and Essential SAFe—which is the basic building block for all other SAFe configurations and describes the most critical elements needed to realize the majority of the Framework’s benefits.
The new white paper should be helpful in several ways:
- Support an initial level of education for leaders, managers, and executives to help them reach the tipping point for SAFe adoption, and inspire them to learn more in a Leading SAFe class
- Prepare students in the basics of SAFe prior to taking a course (e.g. Implementing SAFe with SPC certification, Leading SAFe, etc.)
- Provide a high-level review of SAFe concepts to help students prepare for various certification tests
We hope you find this new white paper to be a valuable resource. Please tell us what you think by replying to this post below.
Always be SAFe,
–Richard Knaster and the Framework Team
